“Excellent Spring break”
Reviewed April 21, 2014

We took advantage of the Spring break offer (dinner, bed and breakfast) during the week leading up to Easter, staying for 3 nights. Our first impression of the hotel from the outside was that it looked like it needed a refurbishment, but once inside, everything was amazing.

Our room overlooked the green and afforded some views over the sea to Scotland, and we could also keep an eye on our car parked below, by the front door. The only downside to this being the we could hear the rumble of heavy lorries going to and from the port from 6am each morning, but we were pre-warned of this and were provided with free ear plugs.

The food, both at breakfast and dinner, was amazing. There was a wide choice of each course, and everything was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent, with all the staff being particularly attentive and helpful. We must especially mention Vicky, who was working behind the bar and serving tables in the restaurant each evening. She was especially friendly and helpful.

If we had a small complaint, it would be the quite early check out time of 10.30am. A charge of 20 pounds is expected for late check out, and as last breakfast orders are 9.30am, this could leave little time to pack up and check out.

We were really pleased to have booked a break inclusive of evening meals, as there appeared to be few other establishments offering evening dining in the town.

The room was clean and our room 24 was large. Rooms on the second floor where we were needs to be updated but I know that is on the pipeline.

The food in this Hotel is amazing and the service 1st class.

Room Tip: Ask for the executive rooms little extra but have been upgraded.

I can not rate this hotel high enough. Looking a wee bit tired from the outside but when you get in the service is second to none. The room was very large and comfortable. The menu was excellent and the food did not disappoint. We were only there for two nights but compliments to the chef as we ate there both night - it was that good. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. No faults whatsoever.

We booked in under the spring break offer, which included an evening meal as well as breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful, particularly the manager who appears to work incredibly hard. We turned up at around 3.30 to find the hotel locked, but I dialled the phone number on the hotel door and we were let in immediately. The room was clean and had everything you could need. I have stayed here before around 4 years ago and I think the hotel has improved including a more professional attitude towards guests and their needs and comfort. The food was ok with very good chips! As part of the spring break offer it is very good value. However speaking as someone who eats out a lot where I live in southern England where prices are generally higher, I agree with previous reviewers who find the food over priced. Overall though I was happy with our stay, and thank you to all the staff for their care and attention.

Well looked after by friendly helpful staff. Comfortable well appointed rooms. Good value especially when taking advahtage of one of their special offers. Would recommend for a stay on the Solway coast. We have enjoyed regular breaks in the Golf for some time.

We had a lovely short break at the Golf Hotel. From start to finish the staff could not have been nicer or more friendly. The room we had was warm, clean and comfortable, the bathroom was large and had plenty of hot water. I have noted some people moaning about the food but we personally had not problems with it. Good portion size and cooked as we requested it when we ordered steak.

One thing I might change is the size of the towels, maybe the provision of bath sheets might be an idea. We are not of the larger persuasion but found the towels a tad small. Not a complaint, just an observation.

Breakfast was at very suitable times which meant you didn't have to get up mega early to catch it.

So, in essence - a nice stay in a nice hotel and we would be more than happy to return in future.

It is NOT a 5 star hotel so don;t expect it to be but, for what it is, they appear to be doing the right thing and are constantly improving the hotel and facilities.

We stayed at the Golf Hotel, Silloth on 26th and 27th February 2014. Our room was large, warm and comfortable with a large bathroom which included a separate shower cubicle and large roll top bath.
All of the staff were really friendly and welcoming in a genuine and down to earth manner. A tasty vegetarian pasta meal was specially made for me. It wasn't on the menu and I got the impression that the chef was very happy to do this for me.
We parked right outside the Hotel (on the road), for free, for the whole duration of our stay.
Silloth is a very small, costal town with an active, working port. It is an ideal location for escaping the rat race and re-charging your batteries. You can take long walks along the sea front, taking in the views and looking across the Solway Firth with the mountains of Galloway, Scotland in the background.
The links golf club gives way to sand dunes and finally a beautiful, long, unspoiled beach.
The local council seems to maintain the public areas to a very high standard, keeping the green and sea front very clean and tidy;there were no signs of all the recent stormy weather visible along the promenade. These efforts create a good first impression of Silloth.
